Summary: I have recommended this laptop to others and I did buy again.
Pros: Ok, I looked at the reviews and thought I'd give one a try to see if they were as nice as others had said. When I got the box and took my first look I thought I was looking at a new machine. No wear marks, smudges or scratches. The Windows 7 setup was easy, done tons of them in the past. Has some...
Summary: Used or refurbished high-end business class laptops like the Lenovo ThinkPad T-series are often a better value than a new, cheap laptop, as long as you know what you're getting into (potential hard drive replacement or upgrade, lack of certain modern ports like USB 3.0 or HDMI). I say, go for it.
Pros: When you buy a refurbished laptop--one that hasn't been sold new in quite some time--you just hope it doesn't suck. You can live with a signs of wear, sure, but you fear intermittent malfunctions or dead pixels or a battery that is close to unrechargable. This was the opposite of that. Thinkpads ...
Cons: Once you get to the Activate Windows screen during setup, you may have the same minor concern I did: Microsoft initially reported that the product key (located underneath the battery, as promised) was out-of-date (or words to that effect), and gives you a few options, one of which is to try a dif...
Summary: was pretty worried of what kind of product i would receive, real happy with what i received. will order again.
Pros: The laptop came in excellent condition, the smallest signs of use. hardly noticeable. Came with a larger hard drive and battery than advertised. THANKS! Monitor is flawless , keyboard is clean and intact. All side ports are undamaged.
Summary: Did an RMA for exchange. Replacement is working excellently.
Pros: Excellent hardware. Linux compatibility. Great price.
Cons: The casing around the screen wasn't completely snapped on, but was easy to fix. Some minor permanent marks/scratches around the screen. No big deal. Missing trackpoint cap. Not the end of the world, but rather annoying. Battery failed first day after arriving. Not cool.
Summary: I have used a number of other laptops for work, but due to my good experience with a Lenovo a T410 that I used for quite a long time, I was clearly biased to this model over others I have used.
Pros: I am familiar with the Lenovo T410, using one for three years at a customer sight. I really liked the way the keyboard felt and I had absolutely no problems with it over the time span I used it. I needed a new laptop for home but couldn't justify spending a lot for a new one. When I saw the deal ...
Worrh every penny, a little heavy but rock solid perfomance.

Summary: Love this machine, added a second drive and now it can boot to Ubuntu or Windows. A little heavy but a solid work horse of a machine. If you do a lot of coding or word processing, this is the machine for you. Spare hi cap battery can be bought cheaper than other machines.
Summary: Will probably do a memory upgrade, just need to look under the hood and see what I need. Just checked the HDD and it is a Western Digital Scorpio Black WD3200BEKT 320GB 7200 RPM. Not too bad. Newegg sells this with 5 years warranty - this should mean something. Enough said.
Pros: Great product, already familiar / used as company laptop. Keyboard looks like new, battery in good shape, screen with no scratches. Installed Windows, look for key in the battery compartment before starting the laptop (Lenovo Singapore?). OK - there's an adhesive foil on the cover to hide maybe s...
Cons: Purolator has roughed-up the box. Almost refused to pick it up from the drop-off center. I strongly recommend to Newegg to put a "Fragile / Handle with care" sticker on the box to make the drivers from Purolator be more careful with the merchandise.
Summary: I don't have the original packaging they require. They advised they could send my request to an internal source/vendor to assist after I fill out paperwork. It's not worth the trouble for me. Too bad they couldn't just run the simple diagnostic test (with the icon on the desktop!
Pros: The laptop is in pristine condition. No scratches, marks, or dead pixels. The keyboard and laptop bottom had to have been completely replaced for it to look so new.
Cons: Unfortunately the Lenovo diagnostic test gave a SMART Drive Self Test warning. After researching online, the consensus seems to be the hard drive is not stable. I asked for a replacement drive, but got the runaround from New Egg chat rep. It looks like I will be replacing it at my own expense.
